Dear Kathy and family
So sorry to hear of Tom’s sudden passing. I am out in Washington state helping my sister so I am unable to attend Tom’s funeral. My daughter Amy saw Tom’ s obituary and notified me. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. When I get back home I will give you a call and we can get together. 🙏❤️💐
